Thai Esane To Open New Brentwood Location January 2021

Brentwood will mark the second location of Nina Singto’s Popular Thai/Laos restaurant, followed by a third opening in Spring 2021 at Fifth + Broadway in downtown Nashville.

As Thai Esane’s Music Row location celebrates its first anniversary, owner and chef Nina Singto announces plans to expand the acclaimed restaurant to two additional locations. Thai Esane Brentwood will open in Hill Center Brentwood at 203 Franklin Road, Suite 100 in January 2021, followed by a Spring 2021 opening at Fifth + Broadway in downtown Nashville.

“We have served the people of Nashville authentic Thai cuisine for more than six years now, and their loyal support is allowing us to expand to other neighborhoods,” said Singto. “We strive to honor the Thai/Laos culture through the restaurant’s food, décor and hospitability, and it’s such an amazing opportunity to share my culture to other neighborhoods of the city I call home.”  

The Hill Center Brentwood location is a 3,500-square-foot space that will offer lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. with dining room seating for 120 and patio seating for 40. Loyal Thai Esane customers will be pleased to see the full menu of favorite specialties such as drunken noodles, larb chicken wrap, papaya salad, Bangkok wings, pineapple boat fried rice, Malaysian noodles and more at the new location.

“We welcome Thai Esane to the Hill Center family and know the restaurant will be a fantastic addition to our current offerings for the community and the center’s employees,” said Jimmy Granbery, chair and CEO, H.G. Hill Realty Company.  

Shortly following the January opening of the Brentwood location, Thai Esane will also take residency at Fifth + Broadway in downtown Nashville in Spring 2021, which will mark the first Thai restaurant option in the core downtown area. This downtown location will offer an abbreviated menu featuring Singto’s top 10 best-selling dishes as part of the highly-anticipated Assembly Food Hall.
